What is buttock augmentation surgery using implants?

The surgery of buttocks or buttocks by means of implants consists of giving the gluteus the roundness that it has lost with the passage of time, with the change of weight or the shape of the gluteus. We got the roundness that I did not have so that, dressed as naked, you can see a glute with a prettier shape.

What type of prosthesis are used for buttock augmentation?

To improve the gluteus and give it that way we have commented, we use a cohesive silicone gel implants that give a feeling of consistency while they are soft and, therefore, have a very natural feel. Previously, less cohesive implants were used, with a softer gel, which left a less natural shape. Now I think we have reached perfection in the gluteal implants, we can choose the volume, the thickness and the shape that we want depending on the morphology of the patient.

What guarantees do prosthetic buttocks offer?

All implants with silicone gel present an extraordinary guarantee today. This does not mean that over time and new technologies will not improve, an example to understand would be to compare a television now with one of 10 years ago. It is not that we used bad implants 10 years ago but technologically they have advanced and currently the guarantee of the implant is very high, especially at the time of replacement.. You have to think that an implant, either gluteal or mammary, does not have an expiration date, you have to make some assessments, some X-rays and change them when you play, but you have to be very clear that they do not expire.

What anesthesia is used for this intervention?

The type of anesthesia that we use for gluteal augmentation is truncal, meaning that we only anesthetize a part of the body, in our case from the navel to the bottom, as if it were the anesthesia that is used in the births. Thus, we get a much faster patient recovery. We operate on him asleep, administering him a sedative, but in the recovery we avoid the elimination of the anesthesia and with it the nausea, the vomiting and the general malaise.

What is the recovery time needed?

After any surgery and specifically with the glutealplasty is very important to be very disciplined the first week and follow the instructions of the plastic surgeon. In our case, the first 48 hours the patient is admitted to the clinic and goes home with a cyclist culotte type girdle to keep the gluteus in place and prevent inflammation from going further.. As of this first week, the greatest risk has already passed, the immediate postoperative period, and when the 30 days of recovery are complete, the patient can live a normal life including sports, social life and even go by bicycle.. It is not a surgery that invalidates the patient for a long time, it must be calculated between one week and ten days.
